Top 5 Gift Ideas for Business to Business Relationships
by Natalie Darr
As the Holiday’s approach, your business needs a way to say thanks. Thank You to your employees, business partners, clients and more. With the right gifts you can show your appreciation to those folks but also promote your brand and company in one single swoop. There are an overwhelming amount of gift ideas for business to choose from out there, so here are a few of our favorites:
- Food Related Items
From divine chocolate boxes to theme-related baskets, these items will ensure that your gift never gets discarded. One of the most popular ways to enjoy life’s finer moments is usually centered around food. Most of these perishable gifts can be customized with your company’s brand, whether it’s the giant chocolate bar that is molded into your logo or the BBQ-themed sauce set with custom labeling. Your brand is now associated with delicious goodies that almost no one can resist.
- Technology Accessories
Nowadays, we are seeing every generation with some sort of technology piece in their hands. Take advantage of this trend with technology accessories for your clients. Not only are you showing your customers your business is up to speed on the latest gadgets but your brand will travel and be located on prime real estate for months to come.
- Outdoor Apparel
Set aside the traditional polo or baseball cap and present outdoor-wear as a thank you to your VIP partners and employees. Most of us have dozens of branded t-shirts that usually get piled into the charity box or trapped in the back of the drawer. Your recipients will be much more inclined to wear a branded trendy jacket or fleece out and about- exposing your company to the masses.
Home is the center and heartbeat of any family. Present your customers with creative household gifts that will enhance that time spent with loved ones. Crafted cheese boards or Ice Cream stations are a great thank you item, showing creativity to clients and your appreciation of a hard day’s work to employees and business partners.
- Recreational Items
Life outside the workplace is why we do the 8-5 dance each day. Your holiday gift can add to that experience with the right item while placing your brand front and center. Outdoor grills, beach kits, portable captain’s chairs and more can be the perfect representation of respect and gratitude while still promoting a little fun. Even smaller items such as sunglasses or water bottles are another budget friendly option to show your thanks and still provide a way to boost your brand.
